The settings on Android 12 have stopped looking so cool. You may remember that in Developer Preview 1, we were introduced to a ghastly blue shade in the submenus. Well, it's not there anymore with Developer Preview 2.

In addition to dropping the blast of periwinkle in the settings, the notification shade has also returned to standard white from a slightly bluer shade in the first preview.

And since we have the not-so-dark dark theme in our view, we should also mention that backgrounds have been brightened up by a few notches to a level of gray you'd find on most turtlenecks. The normal theme also seems to have been grayed down as well. The new, heavily-stylized toggle design that landed in DP1 is now present in more areas, as well.
